Choose to Boost Veggies and Fruit

Choose to boost veggies and fruit is the third theme from the Healthy Kids Community Challenge. This theme encourages kids and families to make vegetables and fruit a part of every meal and snack. Vegetables and fruit help provide children and families with the vitamins, minerals, dietary fibre, and overall energy needed to be physically active and play. The theme goes hand in hand with the first theme, Run, Jump. Play. Every Day. and the second theme, Water Does Wonders!

Veggies and fruit are a great and natural way to help your kids hit their daily dose of essential vitamins, minerals and fibre. By giving children the option of vegetables and fruit at every meal and snack time, we can help them achieve their daily requirement of 5 servings a day! So, let’s always make veggies and fruit an option whenever food is offered, to give them the boost they need.
